Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
When a baby is born to the neighboring kingdom, the Queen of Iddison plans to travel there to help them celebrate. She begins a list of the splendid gifts to bring and of the necessary places to pack the marvels they will pick up along the way. Little Princess Cassidy, who can barely print her name, makes a list of her own, to everyone's amusement. All along on the difficult journey, they add valuable and wonderful items. Cassidy simple checks her list and smiles. When they arrive, each gift is received and praised. "What more could any baby want?" asks a nursemaid. But it is only when Cassidy gives her special gift that the baby gives her first smile. Vibrant ink line and casually applied transparent watercolors create the myriad objects being collected and depict the various people involved in the collecting. The queen demands attention as a dramatic character in impressive outfits orchestrating the action. And of course the moral of the story is a heart-warming one.
